Mary Lanning Healthcare


Gerardo Martinez Milián, Lic. Ac; Dipl. Ac (NCAAOM), has joined Mary Lanning Healthcare as an expert in acupuncture and related procedures at Hastings Family Care and Central Nebraska Specialty Clinic.

Born in Havana, Cuba, Martinez attended the Highest Institute of Medical Sciences of Havana – Instituto Superior de Ciencias Médicas de La Habana. He graduated with his Medical Degree. He completed a residency in urology and practiced for 10 years as a Specialist in Clinical and Surgical Urology.

While working as a general urologist, Martinez studied and applied medical acupuncture and auricular acupuncture, incorporating this new alternative approach to his profession.

Martinez emigrated to the United States with his family due to political issues. He settled in Hastings and obtained credentials as a professional medical interpreter. He taught a course in medical interpretation and medical terminology at Central Community College for four years.

Martinez studied Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Highest Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine with an internship in Beijing, China, at Tongren and Guang An Men, teaching hospitals affiliated to Beijing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. He took the National Boards for Accreditation in Acupuncture and Biomedicine through The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). He received his accreditation as a Diplomate of Acupuncture. Martinez holds additional certification in Auriculotherapy and Auriculoacupuncture through the Auriculotherapy Certification Institute, with and integration of Chinese and European auriculoacupuncture modalities.

Martinez has worked in both western and oriental medicine, which gives him a unique perspective. He believes that an integrative medicine is a must and considers that both medicines can work well together and benefit from one another.

Martinez enjoys sports. He is a master scuba diver and avid underwater photographer, an interest he shares with his “diver buddy,” one of his daughters.
